Our Arboretum

700 Varieties of Trees and Shrubs

After you check out our beautiful web site, come see the real thing.

Elmhurst College is located near the geographic center of metropolitan Chicago, 16 miles west of the Loop. A short walk from downtown Elmhurst, the campus is easily accessible by car or Metra commuter train.

The Elmhurst campus combines the high-tech necessities of a modern education with the charm of a classic college campus. The 48-acre grounds are an arboretum, with more than 700 varieties of trees, shrubs and other woody plants; our classic red-brick buildings boast wireless Internet access, "smart" classrooms and more.

The College has a long tradition of responsible stewardship of the environment. From low-impact lighting and permeable paving to a LEED-certified residence hall, Elmhurst incorporates green principles throughout campus life.

We invite you to schedule a visit to Elmhurst. Whether you're considering applying to the College or just want to explore our arboretum campus, we welcome visitors throughout the year.
